Could not connect to akismet servers. Rolled back to akismet 2.4.0. After that, no problems connecting to the same servers.
I tried akismet version 2.5.3 and 2.5.1, neither of which worked.
I would test more versions, but I don’t get paid to hunt down akismet’s bugs 😉
I’m using Akismet on a number of 3.2.1 sites without any problems. Whatever the issue is, it seems to be specific to your site.
It sounds like your server setup is having an issue with the WordPress HTTP API code. In the Akismet plugin 2.5.x we switched to using that when it was available.
